Klobuchar visits with veterans, honors Kandiyohi County veterans service officer


WILLMAR -- Memorial Day observances for Sen. Amy Klobuchar began Monday at Fort Snelling in St. Paul and continued as she traveled through southern Minnesota to meet with veterans groups.

Klobuchar arrived in Willmar late Tuesday afternoon to visit with veterans at the Willmar American Legion. She was also there to present a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol to Trisha Appeldorn, the Kandiyohi County veterans service officer, "for her continued dedication to Minnesota's veterans."
